Naru must seek practical advice

Letters, Normal

The National, Tuesday 12th February, 2013

GOVERNOR Kasiga Kelly Naru has lost focus since taking office.
He needs a political ad­viser who can strategise his approach on developmental and social is­sues and natural disasters.
He has failed to address issues that affect the people of Lae and Morobe.
His generosity in deli­vering second-hand clo­thes to affected communities in the province is not a solution.
He is not a charity or­ganisation or the provincial disaster and emergency office.
The governor’s philanthropic days are over.
He is now the leader of Morobe and his mission is to find long-term solutions to these issues.
If it means spending millions of kina or seeking assistance elsewhere, it must be done.
He must find strategy
to settle displaced settlers and address the on-going ethnic clash between the Amuas and Sepiks at Bumbu settlement.
The affected Kumalu villagers urgently need to be resettled to higher ground.
The governor does not have to be a rocket scientist but a practical man to analyse these issues and take immediate actions
to address them.
He needs advisers who are practical and see the big picture.
